Certain Sites to Launch Tomorrow, Part of Multi-Week Effort  

State is Responding to Requests from Counties for Assistance in Targeting Communities with Low Vaccine Rates    

Binghamton and Queensbury Sites Also Offer Free Testing

Governor Kathy Hochul today announced the deployment of more than 40 new Pop-Up vaccination sites across New York State to fight the winter surge and rapidly spreading Omicron variant.  

These sites will begin to launch tomorrow and are part of a multi-week effort, in partnership with local county health departments and community partners, to build on the State’s extensive outreach efforts to get all New Yorkers fully vaccinated and boosted.     

"The winter surge is in full force, but we are not defenseless. We have the tools to fight this virus and its variants: Get vaccinated, get the booster and wear a mask,” Governor Kathy Hochul said. “We will continue working with local partners to make vaccines, boosters and testing widely available as soon possible so that all New Yorkers can protect themselves and their loved ones."     

“I am urging everyone to get fully vaccinated and boosted now, ahead of the holidays, as it is our best defense against the virus and its variants,” said Acting Health Commissioner Dr. Mary T. Bassett. “By making a plan to visit one of these Pop-Ups that is convenient for you and your family, you are helping to keep your family and all New Yorkers safe. Remember, we should all prepare for the holidays by doing everything we can to keep the most vulnerable in our families and communities safe.”
